Tell me what I was to you
And I'll bring it back in view
Dim the lights, raise the curtain
Show me where to put my feet

And if my feet betray me
Abandon and forsake me
If you think I need repair
Just turn your back
And smother me in prayer

Hush the crowd, bar the door
Let them know what's in store
Unshackle your Jesus
Command him to fight your war
The See has your back
And nothing to answer for

Cast me into your play once more
I'll read the lines and play the part
And if my show won't please your heart,
Smother me in prayer

I'll be an actor in your play
Seventy times seven once more

And if my heart betrays me
Abandon and forsake me
If you think I need repair
Just turn your back
And smother me in prayer
